Oliver's Orchard. Enter Orlando and Adam.; Orla.
S I remember, Adam, it was upen this my father bequeath á me
by will but a poor thoufand crowns, and, as thou fay't, charged my brother on his bleffing to breed me well ; and there begins my
fadness. My brother Faqúes he keeps at school, and report fpeaks goldenly of his profit : for my part, he keeps me rustically at home, or (to speak more properly) ftays me here at home unkept; for call you that keeping for a gentleman of my birth, that differs not from the stalling of an ox? his horses are bred better ; for besides that they are fair with their feeding, they are taught their manage, and to that end riders dearly hired : but I, his brother, gain nothing under him but growth, for the which his animals on his dunghills are as much bound to him as I. Belides this fiothing that he so plentifully gives me, the something that nature gave me his discountenance seems to take from me. He lets me feed with his hinds, bars me the place of brother, and as much as in him lyes,' mines my gentility with
education. This is it, Adam, that grieves me; and the spirit of my father, which I think is within me, begins to mutiny against this servitude. I will no Yonger endure it, tho’yet I know no wise reraçdy how to avoid it.
